Without the boot interface , GRUB 2 (package grub-pc 1.99-7 from Debian
Sid/unstable) is not loaded when running coreboot with SeaBIOS
as payload on the ASRock E350M1. Only the SeaBIOS banner is shown and
nothing else happens afterward.

More or less a request for comments, as I still do not understand how
SeaBIOS uses the interfaces itself and how SeaBIOS is of any use at all
without being able to boot something. At least I do not know of such a
use case.
